Recently, many of our customers have asked us to help them stop receiving junk mail from the U.S.-based mutual insurance group, State Farm.
There’s nothing more frustrating than a mailbox clogged with unwanted spam. Luckily, State Farm provides recipients with a simple opt-out process that we’ve outlined in this guide.
What type of junk mail State Farm sends
If you happen to have a State Farm insurance plan or credit card, you likely receive legitimate solicitation from them via mail. If you’d like, you can change your mailing preferences through your online account portal to go paperless.
However, whether customers or not, most home addresses across the country will still receive unnecessary junk mail from State Farm landing on their doorstep.
How to unsubscribe from State Farm’s mailing list
Access and complete State Farm’s Do Not Solicit Request Form. Opt out of direct mail, email, and spam calls. Submit a request for each phone number and address.
Write State Farm at the below address to request a removal from their mailing list:
State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Company
Mail Response Center
One State Farm Plaza
Bloomington, IL 61710
If you’re a State Farm customer, you have the option to speak directly to your insurance agent by phone to perform an opt-out request.
How long it takes to stop receiving mail from State Farm
According to information on the website, a State Farm marketing opt-out request will typically take up to 4 weeks to process.
Just keep in mind, this means it’s possible you will receive more junk mail in the meantime. Try to be patient while your opt-out request processes.
What to do if State Farm continues sending marketing material
If you’ve opted out but continue to receive junk mail from State Farm after a month, there are a few options still available to you.
Send the mail back. If there’s a return address on the junk mail, write “Refused: Return to Sender” and put it back in the mail.
You can also try to file a formal complaint by speaking to the State Farm customer service team at 1-800-782-8332.

How to stay off State Farm’s mailing list for good
First and foremost, don’t consent to receive any marketing material from State Farm any time you communicate with them in the future.
But, if you want to take your efforts to the next level, tackle the problem’s root cause. The majority of the companies that send you junk mail are able to continue accessing your personal information because it’s sold to them through data brokers.
To reduce the amount of junk mail and spam calls you receive, you have to opt out of data-broker platforms themselves. Unfortunately, this is a tricky process because there are hundreds of data-broker platforms actively harvesting data.
